Iberostar Grand Rose Hall Tipping question?

Hi,

Can you tell me the etiquette for tipping at the Grand Rose Hall? How much should you tip? Should you leave a tip for the cleaner every day?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks

We just returned on Wednesday from the Grand. I agree with sweetcarebear on this. Tipped $5 for daily housekeeping $3 for evening turndown $5 for speciality restaurants $2 to $3 throughout the daily to bartenders/servers, etc. On the day we left we made additional rounds to offer respect to those who were extra spectacular during our stay. The service was great and tips were not expected.

Tipping the landscaping crew?

That is ridiculous.

Who is next the life guards?

I will not tip the lifeguards unless they save me from drowning . That better include mouth to mouth from a cutie!Just kidding. I do spend slot of time on the beach what about $10 at the end of the day not every drink? I was budgeting $200 in tips for the week including airport and cabs.

Shifts change you may give $10.00 to some one who brought you one drink.

I prefer to tip after every drink.

Also may help to get better service on the following order

Holidayer99, we got some singles and five dollar notes for when we arrived but as usual we then got twenties and a few fifties, we used to get the twenties changed at the front desk every few days. They were happy to give a couple of fives and 10 singles, so don't worry if the bank only gives you a few small notes. Have a great time, we're going back in September:)

We always leave $3.00 each day for the maid since they can change over the course of a stay. We leave $3 at Breakfast and Lunch and $5 at dinner. We give the pool server $5 every day unless we have to get our own. Then we tip the bartender.

If you tip $2-5 everytime someone brings you a drink, you might as well not go to an all inclusive and go to a real five star hotel and pay for that drink. I tip the very best service only. If you tip for each service, it becomes expected every time, defeating the purpose of it.

We sponsor two families who live in one of the poorest countries on earth. They have to walk six miles to carry two buckets of water back to their village. I'll be dammed if I'm going to give someone 2 to 5 bucks to serve me a drink at an all-inclusive resort. I'll get off my chair and get my own drink. These people don't work any harder then someone who works for nothing!

To be honest, we did not see most people tipping at all there. I would say maybe one in ten parties tipped, unless they were super discreet. I specifically watched for it. Service was great there a couple weeks ago.
